Visit all your pages, websites, shops, etc and pretend you are a potential customer. Click on all the links, pictures, anything you can click on, if it doesn't work for you, it doesn't work for your customer.

Brick and Mortar shop owners do this all the time. When setting up a display, they will step back and try to see what it looks like to a potential customer.
If they post a sign indicating what direction to go for a certain product, the owner makes sure the arrow points the right way. Your link is a sign that directs a potential customer to where the item, information, etc is supposed to be. All it takes is a moment for you to click on the link to make sure that it works properly.
I would like some input from my readers. How would you answer these questions:
Question: What action do you take when you are in an Etsy shop or on a blog and you notice something like a link that does not work properly?
My Answer: I notify the shop or blog owner. If I see the problem with the link I provide that information also. In my opinion, this is just professional courtesy.
Question: If I notice something in YOUR shop or blog like a link that doesn't work properly, do you want to know?
My Answer: I sincerely hope that you will.
